Despite a weak beginning, this film manages to instead keep going up instead of sinking even lower. The actors are perfect for their roles - their contrast provided the strength it needed to maintain the thickening plot. Very good comedy - IDespite a weak beginning, this film manages to instead keep going up instead of sinking even lower. The actors are perfect for their roles - their contrast provided the strength it needed to maintain the thickening plot. Very good comedy - I think it weighed it down a little, which is often a side effect of trying to implement comedy so forcefully just because it was a comedy. But the upside was that it was funny anyway without trying too hard. What I didn't get about this film was that it was sometimes confusing and kept changing direction - which is difficult when you're trying to maintain a couple of sub-plots, and I don't think this handled it very well. The comedy made it more than bearable though and the film didn't just become overly benign, self-centred on making the audience feel really sorry for the characters. In the end, this film had incredible heart in fulfilling a comedic yet thoughtful purpose. Expand

Twins as a movie itself is only okay, but it produces one of Arnold's most enjoyable roles, so that's a plus. DeVito doesn't really add anything new, and relies on his previous roles to fill this one.
